Understanding the scope, nature and implications of changes
Following extensive public consultation and national debate, the Fourth Edition of the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations, will be ready for release in early 2019. Governance Institute of Australia is a founding member of the ASX Corporate Governance Council. We invite you to an unmissable national briefing series, which examines the changes and revisions to the principles and recommendations around values, culture and conduct. At a time when culture, ethics and governance have been at the centre of national discussion, the impetus for the revisions is clear. However, the debate around scope of the review and the possibly prescriptive nature of recommendations has been robust. What will the Fourth Edition deliver?
- Examining the changes to the ASX Corporate Governance Principles
- Preparing to disclose against the revised Principle 3
- New and amended recommendations
- Related Listing Rule changes
- The expanding scope and expectations of companies' governance, risk and compliance practices
- "If not, why not” vs prescriptive recommendations
- Impact on board roles, responsibilities, accountability and function
- Culture, values and remuneration
- Crossovers between current legislative reform and the changes to the principles and recommendations
Who should attend?
- Board members
- Company secretaries
- Heads of governance
- General counsels
- Senior governance and risk management professionals
